Fashion becomes fatal in Peter Strickland’s eerie, atmospheric and savagely funny satire about a killer red dress. When hapless Thames Valley mother Sheila (Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Secrets and Lies) is enticed into purchasing a seductive dress from a mesmerising sales assistant, the outfit quickly begins to call the shots. Sumptuously shot and wildly hypnotic, 'In Fabric' is both a hilarious send-up of consumerist culture and a gripping tale of loneliness and menace.
